Thank you TVTexas for posting on ATS. Sorry that a lot of people are going to attack you. I certainly hope that you can understand why? People are
very angry at our media and with good reason.
I used to be a graphic designer for a newspaper (just for a shot while). Was switching to video production, but now I’m going into Engineering
Technology. However, I still make videos from time to time for fun and for other volunteer projects. I would like to ask you some video production
questions if you please.
I am going to be the main camera man and editor for a one hr video about propaganda. The person giving the class is a former military officer and
instructor on the topic. I have checked out some old time Public domain video on the subject for cut aways for voice overs, but mostly the video will
cover the basics of propaganda and logic (buzzwords, red herrings, gobbledygook, etc).
Question 1: How do I go about using video from the TV legally? So far, everyone tells me that I can only use what is public domain. Yet I see all
kinds of videos on you tube that use recorded news broadcasts. Are they simply using this footage illegally?
Question 2: Do you plan on helping ATS to make videos or other productions that will get the truth out more?
Question 3: Right now I have a video fluid head tripod, but no dollies or other track systems. I plan on using a lot of after effects graphics and cut
aways to old school, public domain, propaganda videos. The video though will seem very dated and not as relevant to today’s news and current
propaganda techniques. Should I just make a cheap dolly system and make my own edgy camera scenes of cityscapes, maps, and props to get a more current
feel to the video and do away with the dated public domain propaganda clips?
